High Technology High School Reviews

So far my experience at HTHS has been pretty good. The classes are engaging, the teachers are slightly lax, but pretty knowledgeable. Most of the students are nice and willing to help each other out.

However, even as a sophomore, the workload could be very overwhelming, resulting in just a few hours of sleep every night. A few students actually drop out

Overall, attending HTHS is a great decision for me; I couldn't imagine myself being in any other school. We have a diverse student body here, all students are involved in extracurricular activities (yes we have many varsity athletes despite being a nerd school). Unlike many teens in the "regular" high schools, kids in this school don't really party and stuff because we are too focused on school work. If you are a middle school student interested in STEM, you should considering applying here; you'll meet people who have the same interest as you and the best facilities to guide you through high school.

High Technology High School provides a unique experience. Success can be found at High Tech through a lot of hard work. A great aspect of this school is the feeling of accomplishment you get after the strenuous school year is done. There is a huge focus here on engineering, so if this school is under your consideration, make sure you find yourself somewhat interested in that field or you will find yourself in many classes that you do not like. There is little to no attention to the arts, so that is another point to consider. Something I would like to see change about the school environment is the formation of cliques. It can be hard to make friends here, especially if you don't fit in with the in crowd.
Teachers at High Technology High School are known to be over-priviledged and extremely lax at their teaching because the students are held to such high standards- HTHS is the country's top STEM school and its students are expected and reputated to be the brightest in the nation. Therefore, students are expected to be able to learn and perform well on thier own with little to no help at all from teachers. Although a few teachers do genuinely care for their students and do sincerely try to make their teaching as effective as possible, the majority of the teachers simply throw loads of assignments at students, make class requirements and exams unnecessarily difficult, do not help struggling students, and spend minimal time actually teaching.
